Gordon State College junior Ornella Oluwole has been accepted into the prestigious 2014 Summer Educational Enrichment Program at Georgia Regents University.
Her time there will be spent working with the Medical College of Georgia to prepare for her Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and learning more about the medical profession.
The program offers an opportunity for the students to focus on pre-med classes, shadow professionals in a clinical setting and network while earning college credit toward a degree in biology at Gordon State.
Oluwole praises the support she has received from faculty.
“Dr. Lynn Rumfeld told me about the program,” Oluwole said. “Dr. Mustapha Durojaiye has been a mentor to me, and Dr. Gregory Hartman wrote a recommendation letter to the program. They have been very helpful.”
Oluwole intends to apply for medical school by the end of summer.
